The Honors Course

This is a world-class golf facility located just outside Chattanooga, TN. Like a lot of the history of these courses in the top-100 a well-to-do local business man set off to create a top course in his hometown. Pete Dye was brought in during the late 70s to design a course on hundreds of acres […]

Cypress Point Club

Man. Woah. Finally got to play CPC this week. Bucket list experience for sure. The course is sick. I don’t even know where to start. As I’ve written in past blog posts the land on 17 mile drive in Pebble Beach is blessed by the golf gods. The combination of sand, ocean, and beautiful Cypress […]

Streamsong (Black)

On a recent trip to Tampa, I made the hour journey to check out the Streamsong Resort. Approaching the resort reminded me of the sandy plains near Prairie Dunes or Ballyneal. Perfect for golf. The first course I played was the Black Course which only opened five months ago or so. I really enjoyed it […]

Pasatiempo Golf Club

It is a gift to golf in the US that an Alister MacKenzie course is as accessible as it is at Pasatiempo. This is a course worthy of a visit if life takes you through the Bay Area and you have the time. Most notable were the beautiful greenside bunkers that were cleaned up in […]

Monterey Peninsula Country Club (Shore Course)

In the US there are two pieces of land indisputably blessed by the golf gods. One is the stretch of property in the Hamptons that includes Shinnecock, National, and Sebonic — the other Monterey Bay whose peninsula holds Cypress, Pebble Beach, and Monterey Peninsula County Club to name a few. On this occasion I had […]

Trinity Forest

This 2014 Coore-Crenshaw design just outside of Dallas, TX seems destined for top 100 greatness. I was very happy to get the chance to play the course that will be hosting the Byron Nelson PGA tour event going forward. This links-style course will make a great venue for watching the pros (especially Spieth who is […]

2017 Golf

A few years ago I was invited to Pine Valley and for some reason I turned down the offer because I was too “busy.”  I was so regretful of this decision I vowed to myself that I would try my very best to always say “yes” when invited to a top 100 golf experience going […]


I want to respect the privacy of this special place and am simply re-printing an awesome article written in Golf Digest about Alotian. A must-read for any golf nut.

Newport Country Club

Home of the first ever US Open in 1895, Newport Country Club is an important part of golf history in America. For some reason the course is not ranked in the “top 100” but this is a mistake in my opinion. In fact based on my experience the course should probably be in the top […]

Fishers Island Club

When we showed up at Fishers Island the pro said we were in for a treat… that the course is in A+ shape and is “for-sure” the best course in the world today. It was the last day of the season and the greens were running as pure as any round I had this year […]
